## chi square test

Submit after you review your feedback from SPSS assignment 9.

Each team will run a chi-square test of independence on two categorical variables to see if they are related to each other. Scroll down to the end of this page to see which two variables you are to analyze for your project.

Each team will create and submit two pptx slides: one slide for their chi-square test information and table, one slide for the relevant SPSS output with the numbers used hi-lighted. Make sure you include the SPSS output showing the % of the sample within each row and each column.

On the chi-square slide, be sure to report the statistical results in correct APA format. Please see this sample pptx for what goes on the chi-square slide.
